At NYC Health + Hospitals we are committed to providing you with the best information possible so you can make informed decisions about your care. This includes providing you with a list of hospital charges and an estimate of out-of-pocket costs for the most common services we provide.
You can obtain an estimate of your out-of-pocket costs for many services before your visit via MyChart or by calling 1-844-692-4692 and selecting option 3 to speak to a financial counselor. Our staff can help provide a comprehensive estimate based on your health insurance coverage and benefits information and your financial situation.
Hospitals are also required to make available applicable negotiated charges with contracted insurers for inpatient admissions and outpatient visits. These negotiated charges do not reflect how much you as a patient with coverage from the insurer will have to pay to NYC Health + Hospitals as out-of-pocket costs. These charges also may not reflect the actual amount ultimately paid by insurers. You can access the list here.
NYC Health + Hospitals also maintains a cost estimator tool for patients which provides an estimated out-of-pocket cost to you for the most frequently provided services that may be scheduled in advance. These services are also referred to as “shoppable services.” This estimated out-of-pocket cost is based on your insurance coverage information or self-pay status at the time of your request for the cost estimate. This estimate does not represent a guaranteed price or coverage of the services by your insurance plan, but includes an estimate of the charge the insurer has negotiated for the service, as applicable. The actual out-of-pocket cost to you may vary based on your health insurance coverage and benefits, medical condition and any additional tests or procedures ordered by your physician at the time of the service. You can access the cost estimator tool here.
